Currently Elon Musk had no enough cash to acquire Twitter even his worth is more than 250 Billion USD. Reason is Elon Musk most of wealth is in the form of Tesla or SpaceX shares. Probably he needs to pledge his shares in Tesla and SpaceX in order to acquire Twitter.
Some or the other way there is high probability for Elon Musk to finally acquire Twitter.
By any chance, if Elon Musk acquires Twitter then there could be couple of layoffs considering Tesla history and whoever remains back after screening their salaries will increase.
So by any chance of Twitter board agrees to 54.2 USD bid or a higher bid then better to negotiate if any employees are going to be lay off then better to keep below conditions
- Twitter company should pay 6 months of salary who are associated with Twitter for less than 1 year.
- Twitter company should pay 12 months of salary who are associated in Twitter for 1 to 4 years.
- Twitter company should pay 18 months of salary who are associated in Twitter for more than 4 years.
Generally past vision and future vision will change between old management and new management and couple of layoffs is possible if management of company changes.
Elon Musk is aggressive in hiring or firing while looking for talent and capabilities that he needs.
